  • Hi GMC! Welcome to the fourth lesson of these improvisation exercises series.

    Today I bring to you a similar exercise than the last one but now with the dominant arpeggios.

    The idea of this exercise is that we could see the box of any arpeggio in the moment that we have to play this arpeggio. By this way and with the help of other exercise we could play the note that we want it to sound.

    The first step in this case is studying the dominant arpeggios by any box, then we will choose four chords; C7, Eb7, Ab7 and Bb7.

    We start playing at the fifth string (to the front) with the C7 arpeggio four times, then we will playing Eb7 arpeggio starting at the fifth (to the back) string too, then Ab7 arpeggio starting at the sixth string (to the front) and the last one Bb7 arpeggio starting at the sixth string (to the back).

    The work is to connect one arpeggio with the next by the nearest note using different ways.

    In this exercise you have to looking your own way all the time, as possible try not to repeat the same way like in the lesson.

    I recommend doing this exercise in different parts of the neck!
